Over fifty beautiful murals are scattered throughout the village. Over 75% of the homes are painted and when complete it will have over 90 murals. In addition to the beautiful murals, there is a magnificent glass front church. It was designed for destination weddings. There is no other village on the coast of Ecuador that compares to the beauty of La Entrada. Check out the pictures included in this post.

The place you hate to leave
We absolutely enjoyed our experience at the Villa de los Suenos. The villa is beautiful and it right on the beach. All the suites face the ocean with terraces so you can enjoy the amazing view. It was wonderful to fall asleep at night to the sound of the ocean. In the morning we had delicious breakfasts with omelets made to order and delicious breads from Benito’s bakery.
We really liked walking the beach at low tide looking for seashells. After our walks the infinity pool was so refreshing. It was also nice to relax in the hot tub.
From the moment we arrived we felt so welcome. Marsha and Shell are the ultimate hosts and took our group to the nearby towns of Puerto Lopez and Montanita. One night we went to a restaurant on the beach about 30 minutes away and just as we arrived we saw a magnificent sunset. Another night they took us to Montanita for dinner. They will also arrange tours for you.
We didn’t want to leave but it was time to go. We are already making plans to return.
As you travel through the gated entrance and are met with the beautiful lush, tropical landscaped grounds and then your eyes feast on the breathtaking ocean views, you know you are in for a rare treat! All 5 spacious rooms have ocean views as far as you can see in any direction! All have a balcony where you can sit and enjoy the gentle breeze and listen to the waves crashing on the beach. Your hosts Marsha and Shell are not only kind and accommodating, but you feel like you have known them forever as soon as you meet them. You can join them and other guests for lively conversations, and if you can talk Shell into telling you stories you will laugh until your sides hurt, or if you prefer, you can do your own thing and not be bothered. You never feel you are intruding in their home as with many B&B's, as all rooms have an outside access and you can come and go as you wish. Breakfast, which is all you can eat by the way, is served until 10:30! Hallelujah! You don't have to scurry down by the crack of dawn as in so many hotels and B&B's in order to catch a table or a skimpy breakfast! Here Elena or Feliciano, delightful, friendly Ecuadorians, will serve you omelets made to order, or if you prefer just regular eggs any way you want, there is an abundance of different fresh fruits, rolls, coffee cake, waffles, granola, yogurt, the list goes on and on. An outside kitchen facing the ocean with tables, a refrigerator stocked with drinks, wine, coffee, tea, etc. is accessible all day. Marsha and Shell will take you around and show you sights, introduce you to restaurants, that I guarantee you would never find on your own, answer questions, show you where you can surf, shop for unusual gifts, fish, or if you like to play catch, their adorable brown Labrador dog "choco"( short for chocolate) will bring you his ball, actually he carries 3 in his mouth to play, whatever you want to do. They also provide hammocks on each balcony if you just want to relax and read or just watch surfers or fishing boats bobbing along the coastline. By the time we left, we felt we knew all about this coastal area and what each little town was noted for, how this oasis part of the coast is green, has few if any mosquitoes( and if there had been one within 20 miles it would have found my husband) things it would have taken us months to learn on our own. With the beautiful sunsets, peaceful setting, gracious, kind hosts, fabulous sunny warm days, you will NEVER want to leave!
My new favorite place
What a beautiful view! My new favorite place, I want to go back soon! Excellent attention from the hosts Marsha, Shell and Choco. Totally recommended. The perfect place to disconnect from the stress of the city, nothing better than wake up with the sound of the sea waves and the birds sing.
Suenos is correct – Dreams do come true there!
I have just spent a week at Villa De Los Suenos and I tell you, I am ready to go back.
Advantageously nestle in a small village named “La Rinconada” about 40km north of Salinas and 10km south of Montañita, this 6-room B&B is absolutely magnificent, even more so its splendid owner Shell and Marsha, their two staffs, Feliciano and Helena not forgetting their adorable brown Labrador suitably named Choco.
From their warm reception, to the scrumptious breakfast buffet with Helena’s made-to-order omelet, the clean bright rooms overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the lush tropical grounds, pool and Jacuzzi, and the spectacular sunsets, there is nothing short of perfection for a relaxing time there.
Shell even took us on several excursion tours and of course some of the best seafood restaurants in the area.
There is something for everyone there, rather single, couples or families you can’t go wrong with your stay there.
Wow what a wonderful B&B .
We stayed in the king Ballerina room on the 3rd floor.
The king bed was the most comfortable, with all the amenities including coffee for our lazy mornings before going down to a super yummy breakfast. The breakfast was a large assortment of fruits, yummy pastries and fresh eggs cooked to order.
A gorgeous view from the balcony with table and chairs and a hammock as well.
The Host Marsha and Shell were super friendly and open their home to us.
They invited us to join them for dinner with the other guests, which includes the film crew from House Hunters International, A lovely couple from Alberta, and a nice young Ecuadorian couple. The fish & chicken meal was awesome!
The pet dog Choco was the boss of the property super friendly (I am not a dog person) loved to go for walks on the beach and very well behaved.
This is a 5 star!
Thank you so much Shell and Marsha we hope to see you again!
Stop looking at other places, this is the one you want!
I could go on and on about what makes this place so magical but tl;dr so:
- The service is impeccable. I actually hate to use the word service because it so much more than that. It's like being at a boutique hotel with your best friends. The kind of friends that you can chat with for hours or just say a quick hello and go relax in your room. Either way, it's all good.
- The property is immaculate. It actually looks like the photos! They have truly thought of everything. The rooms have everything you need for a few nights stay or to hunkering down for a couple of months.
- The food is delicious, clearly no expense is spared so that you have many options for your breakfast and that they can accommodate any diet.
And last, but certainly not least, Choco! What an amazing dog. If I had a bigger bag I'd be trying to take him home!
